Paralysed by Choice...

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by possibilities? Paralysed by choice?  That’s me right now.  There are so many things I want to do.  Things I want to sew for myself. Things I want to sew for the kids.  Birthday prezzies that I need to make. Masks to sew for my shop. Patterns to develop and grade. Newsletters to write, marketing to do, blog posts to write.  So may things and I want to do them all.  So many things that it is completely impossible to choose one. So many things to do that really, all I can do is sit on the sofa and re-watch The West Wing and admit that I might be just be a tiny little bit obsessed with it.

Even my beloved To Do lists can’t help me at the moment.  They’re just too big and my available time is too small.  Plus my indecision means that I end up starting several things and finishing none which means that I never get around to crossing things off which, really, is the best thing about lists.  It's also why I always, always hand write them! So I just end up resenting my list which is metaphorically tapping me on the shoulder while I sit on the sofa. 

I'm sure I'll get out of my funk soon enough and start making progress again, but in the meantime I'm going to sit on the front porch with a glass of wine and enjoy this beautiful late summer evening.
